Aye up, Robinson has lost the plot I hear you say, fear not.
Here are some anti-aircraft defence for my German and Soviet forces.
Whilst I was in field grey mode I dug out some more AB Germans I had in the 20mm stash.
During a game via Zoom kindly hosted by Matt (Wargames In The Dungeon) I realised that OHQ had not seen a game set in Central Asia for a while, on checking it was in February 2016! Although the S.P.I.F.F had been in action in Rhanzlistan, (Clicky)
Whilst Comrade Robinski had been having mixed success in Rhanzlistan the Soviet enclave of Sher Li had only had a token military presence. Local Warlord Bic Li decided he would take the opportunity to take back control of the town.
Local communists had however reported the warlords plans to the towns commandant and word was quickly sent for reinforcements, it turned out that Comrade Robinski and a small force was already in transit after his recent success in Rhanzlistan.

Meanwhile The Town Garrison Makes Merry
Another EBay purchase, a Faller or Fabri cottage, not very well put together but I thought it gave it a dilapidated look. I did have to revolve the roof and glue it on the right way though, I don’t think it would have kept the rain out otherwise🙂

First up the shiny, the guard escort for the Byzantine emperor, a couple of shots prior to the shields being applied and obscuring a lot of Adams fine details and another with their shields attached flanking the emperor in a possible configuration on the base.
Figures Aventine Miniatures with LBMS shield transfers and banner, modified to fit.
Now for the dull and drab part (olive drab actually) two Shermans with 76mm guns for the "nothing new in 22" project.

The project is off to a flying start, I have purchased enough figures for a full platoon and support, a Sherman platoon, a M36 Jackson and some M3 half tracks should I wish to field an armoured infantry platoon. This should keep me occupied until Partizan were I hope to pick up some more vehicles.
The progress so far.
A moving and firing bazooka team and the start of the platoon HQ, all AB figures.
BAR and rifle teams all AB Figures again.
30cal machine gun team, yes you guessed AB Figures.
Reconnaissance team, jeep by Italeri and the crew Plana Mayor.
57mm anti-tank gun, crew Simon's Soldiers and the gun is from Empress Miniatures.
Sherman "Easy Eight" with 76mm gun a Trumpeter plastic kit and stowage from Early War Miniatures.
That's all for now folks.
